Dehumidifying Dryers

Dehumidifying Dryers
Vol. 27 #2, November 2000

The dehumidifying dryers used to pre-dry hygroscopic polymers operate with a closed loop dry air circuit. Any air leaks in the drying air circuit will allow ambient moisture to enter the drying system and permanently saturate the dryer’s desiccant, resulting in fluctuating dew point readings.
